Top quality perspectives.
With its 88 apartments on 14 floors, No.1 Deansgate numbers among the most prestigious addresses in Manchester. Indeed, the Royal Institute of of British Architects has described the building as, “a heroic symbol of the regeneration of the Manchester city centre”. No.1 Deansgate is located at the junction of Deansgate and St. Mary’s Gate, and from the outset has served as a reference point in the Manchester skyline. Indeed in 2003, Deansgate was awarded the RIBA’s first prize for the Best Apartment Building.
A special seal of quality for the building is provided by the fact that its designer, the world-famous architect, Ian Simpson, is also a resident.
GIG supplied the climatized facade (double-skin with 5,000 m2 of single glass lamellas), the noise insulation and the ventilation for the project and thus made a major contribution to the success of the Deansgate building with regard to both its exterior appearance and the excellent quality of life and comfort provided by its interior.
